Rufus Block BioSphere

Today I sketched the biosphere bubbles on the Rufus 2.0 block of Amazon.  I wanted to capture it before it was too complete.  I also looked back to last April when I sketched from the same location just as the construction was starting.  There is no signs of the bubbles, but the elevator/stair cores were just starting to appear along with all the cranes and concrete pumpers.
Now the new tower is almost complete behind and the structural frame of the bubbles are taking shape.  Look forward to coming back again when some more of the building is complete.

There also were many people stopping to take photos and asked me if I knew what the bubbles were for....I believe they will be a conferencing center and gathering spaces for Amazonians within a lush, terrarium-like space.  We will wait to see how it all turns out.
